The Taliban has released a new video of US soldier Bowe Bergdahl captured last year in Afghanistan, and called for his exchange for Taliban prisoners.
REUTERS - The Afghan Taliban issued a video on Wednesday of an American soldier captured last summer that showed him him saying "please bring me home."
The video of Idaho National Guard Private Bowe Bergdahl was posted and described by SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors websites used by extremist groups.
The Afghan Taliban had previously issued a video of Bergdahl on Christmas Day.
"I'm a prisoner. I want to go home. You know, the Afghanistan men who are in our prisons want to go home too. Let me go. Get me to come home. Release me," Bergdahl says, according to SITE.
The video ends with Afghan Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid saying his group demands the release of a limited number of prisoners in exchange for Bergdahl's release, SITE said.
A Pentagon spokeswoman said: "We have seen reports of the video but we have not seen the video."
